The city expects to receive $50,000 via a child safety fee that’s tacked on to the cost of motor vehicle registrations in the county, according to the council packet.

You can exhale now, Roy. They've gotten away with their blatant rip-off, and it's all blown over. Nothing more will be heard from them on the subject. They had a bit of a close call on this one, so it'll probably be a while until the next.
